This Wednesday we’re welcoming Phillip Whiteside (phillw) for a class which will walk you through installation of a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) server, adding on phpmyadmin and a short discussion on PHP magic-quotes.
Date and time: 28nd July, 18:00 UTC
Slides will accompany this presentation and will be posted in channel at the beginning of the session and linked in the channel topic.
If you are unable to attend the session, logs will be available afterwards.
I will try to cover basic usage like querying the web interface, reporting new bugs and also more deeper handling of bugs, including version tracking issues, and will try to address raised questions as good as possible.
The session will take place on 22nd July, 18:00 UTC in #ubuntu-classroom (questions/comments in #ubuntu-classroom-chat) on irc.freenode.net. If you are unable to attend the session, logs will be available afterwards.
We would also like to remind everyone that we would love to be able to make these sessions available to users who might not be fluent in English. To do this, we need people to volunteer to help serve as translators. There is information on the wiki page along with a short list of people who have volunteered to help translate. If you have any questions, feel free to send them to the ubuntu-classroom mailing list or stop by #ubuntu-classroom-backstage on irc.freenode.net.

Thanks again to everyone who participated, and if you’re itching for more development classroom goodness, be sure to attend Rhonda’s session “Working with Debian BTS for (not only) Ubuntu Contributors” on Thursday, July 22 at 18:00 UTC.
